The first thing that Stephanie said to me when I got to her house for getting ready photos was, “How’s the weather?” Stephanie Barsby is a meteorologist for CBC. As an avid CBC Radio One listener I hear her weather reports almost every day on the Radioactive program. So you can imaging how excited I was to shoot her wedding. There was a cold snap leading up to the wedding, but as it turned out, the weather that day was beautiful.

She had a gorgeous bridal party. The guys side, most of them from Kinuso, were a lot of fun. They certainly kept my second shooter Melissa on her toes during the getting ready pictures. Ben and Stephanie are most certainly in love, and their children and them make a wonderful family together.

At the reception was placed at a table with most of the Radioactive hosts. They are a down to earth bunch in person. It’s no wonder that I enjoy their personalities so much on the radio.

Congratulations Stephanie and Ben!

– Michael

Geez, I went to Vancouver for a few days (where the leaves are still green by the way) and all the beautiful yellow leaves are gone here!

This is part 3 of a 4 seasons project with the Rayners, (winter is coming….), and this time they have a new addition, their son Rhys.  He is a VERY welcome addition to their family, and is sure to be spoiled absolutely rotten.  I spent a very early morning on their acreage (where I was introduced to bulletproof coffee – thanks Sean!), and I always love visiting with this sweet family.

K & K – Couples Session

October 14, 2014

K & K drove all the way up from Southern Alberta for a session with me and we had a fantastic time! It was one of those shoots where the creative juices were flowing, the couple was amazing and gorgeous, and the location was perfect.  After a few years together these two wanted a fun and stylish shoot to be able to hang some images in their home, which I think is an awesome idea.  For this late night shoot we were allowed into the Red Piano and it was basically empty so we could do whatever we wanted…and after a few drinks together and a few jokes we made a little magic.  Big thanks to Sam from Samuel James Photography who collaborated with me on this shoot and brought along some of his lighting equipment to play with.

Anam & Abdullah are a very sweet couple and chose the Legislature for their wedding photos.  Thankfully the weather at the end of September was gorgeous and Michael had a wonderful afternoon with them.  Their reception at the Palace Banquet Hall was fun and vibrant! Congratulations Anam & Abdullah!

Justin’s dad described Linda & Justin as ‘twitterpated’, and after spending time with them I think it’s a really accurate assessment.  Adorable would be another very appropriate term.  They planned a classically beautiful wedding at St. Joseph’s Basilica and the Fairmont Hotel Macdonald in Edmonton. It was a perfect fall day for these two. They met at the University of Alberta when paired together for a school project, and the rest is history! It was awesome to celebrate with them and see their two families join together.  Congratulations Linda & Justin!

Linda & Justin envisioned something unique for their decor- a mix of all the elements.  It was my first time seeing frozen centerpieces!

A rare occasion – Michael and I shot this wedding together! Here is some behind the scenes (including evidence that I’m a workaholic, I pitched in to put some final touches on the table decor).

Carrie & Nick are enjoying one last trip before their little one arrives! Before they left I met up with Carrie for her maternity photos. Nick made a cameo ;)  If I can predict a couple of things about this wee baby, I think it will be very well dressed and very well traveled.

Sherri & Ken have a classic elegance about them. Their wedding had the same feel. Nothing was rushed, everything was planned perfectly. Every detail of their wedding was beautiful, and I adore Sherri’s off-the-shoulder dress. They had a beautiful fall day for their wedding, and we had lots of time for photos. And do they ever know how to throw a good party! Ken is a doctor, and Sherri is a nurse, and they have a close group of friends and colleagues that partied the night away with them at the reception. It was a perfect day from start to finish. Congratulations Sherri & Ken!

We love it when Ready, Set, Booth is there at the receptions – the guests have an awesome time, and with the open air style you can fit a lot of people in at once!

We had some pretty amazing light at the golf course for a few minutes so of course we had to take photos of each other…

This little girl is full of personality already, and I know she’s going to love growing up on the farm.  My daughter got to see her first real life cow on the Ballhorn farm a few years ago and I know so many adventures await this little one!

Basi Extended Family Photos

September 29, 2014

The Basi family was great to work with – Michael usually does our family photography but I was happy to work with this large family – we’re lucky to both be full time photographers so we can schedule multiple shoots at the same time. The kids were so well behaved and everyone was so easy going.

I’d like to say thank you to Balraj for organizing these extended family photos – it takes a lot of work to organize this many people, and she did a fantastic job, right down to the outfits! And thanks to Melissa for being a fab assistant during this shoot.

As I sit snuggled in my office on this rainy Friday afternoon I’m reminiscing about beautiful warm summer days and all the weddings we’ve been able to photograph this year. As our season draws to a close I feel truly grateful to have my dream job and for all of the families and couples that we have worked with.

Here is what Michael had to say about Keegan & Curtis’ wedding:

Keegan and Curtis’ wedding was a beautiful affair on the cusp of fall. The ceremony was held in the Old Timer’s Cabin and afterwards we went right out behind to get some pictures in the ravine.

They are friends with the owners of El Cortez. After we finished a shot of coconut tequila (which is delicious by the way), we used the space to take some seriously cool portraits. Their reception and dance were held at the Mirage Banquet Hall.
